regarding their voting records and actions in regard to, say, equity in education and access to health care and fiar pay. and i actually have to say i link the fairness and focus on just this in regard to domestic issues and international issues. i do not apply those values just to u.s. citizens but to apply the same desires for fairness and justice with regard to our foreign policy, u.s. foreign- policy. i do find that my religious upbringing does -- is interwoven in however prison as. host: rich from tennessee. independent caller. caller: merry christmas, greta. host: good morning, merry christmas. caller: i echo the last caller. i would say my politics changed from republican to it independent. i voted the constitution party the last presidential election. but i found that most people who are serious voters do consider moral beliefs, our laws are based on morality. whether the source is a religion or their own sense of morality which they probably borrowed from other religions, how can you not consider morality and believes when you are voting? otherwise, you are simply pushing a lever b

clark oposian, whose group put on the education, and dennis vac rockle p what are teachers telling you? >> they've had an emipiphany of sorts. the only training so far has lock the doors and hide behind the desk. we need to give them another option. we had about 200 teachers, other school employees as well. >> you've down this a long time. what percentage after the training end up getting guns. >> some of them already have firearms. i don't know, but the majority of those that i still communicate with, they have their firearms and carrying in schools. >> listen to one teacher that went through the training. >> now, especially, i'm thinking this would be a great opportunity to probably the children, protect the classroom and the teachers if that opportunity arose. that's the reason i'm here. >> what's the reaction to that. they fair carrying concealed weapons inside schools. >> well, as a high school math teacher for 23 years, i can tell you that guns do not belong in schools, period. i believe this is a complex problem action and to suggest there is one solution, to put more guns in sc
this stuff also about the educational stuff like the policy-making situations which i'm very interested in. it's a great thing washington, d.c. has all these things and c-span has covered it. >> c-span created by america's cable companies in 1979 luft. >>> president obama meets with house and senate leaders from both parties this afternoon at the white house that meeting is scheduled for 3:00 eastern in the oval office. politico rights leader's side is hopeful there will be a breakthrough on preventing the tax increases and spending cuts scheduled to take effect on january 1st. earlier today senator tom harkin held and even outside of the capitol about the fiscal cliff. he called it a battle for the middle class. we will also hear from congressman chris van hollen and members of advocacy groups. >> are we ready? okay. good morning. all right. good morning. welcome to this cold morning press conference here outside of the senate office building. i am the executive director of network and i am one of them on the bus. we're here to continue the message, grizzlies to find a solution to the eco
. >> and you met with the families of these victims, 20 kids six educators, that must have been one of the most difficult things you have ever done in your life. >> i was a part of it, but quite frankly, the people assigned to work with them, the one-on-one's, the interviewers that had to sit with the people, those were very hard jobs to do. there were so many people that played such a major role in this whole situation that it really was spread out among many. >> i know the whole thing has been painful. painful for all of us who have been here. i can only man what the families were going through. but is there one moment that stands out in your mind that you will never forget the rest of your life? >> i think the crime scene itself is something has made an indelible mark on our minds. if you were tasked with the responsibility of going into the crime scene, it is something you will never be able to erase. >> you mean, when you walked into the sandy hook elementary school and you saw the bodies of little kids on the floor? >> yes. >> how can you -- that must be so shocking and traumatic? >> it i
control. why all of this for one african-american student who wanted to get an education at a brand name university it's because the whole state was in an insurrection from the governors, from the statehouse itself down to the 11-year-old who were throwing bricks at us in the street. it was total chaos, total mayhem. even the mississippi highway patrol had pulled away, so there was your insurrection. lasted two or three days. the violent part of it. and then after that i was appointed to be the security officer for james meredith and went to school with him, or he went to school, i stayed outside with a hand-picked patrol, three jeeps, 12 soldiers, and we were there throughout the year. we transferred back and forth. the army was in place for almost a year until he graduated in august, 1963. i was 23 years old. i grew up in an all-white neighborhood in south min yapless, john -- minneapolis. a few italians, but that was pretty much it. so it was an eye opening for me. but, again, we were trained, and i am is so proud of what the army did. when you write a book -- this is my first -- the
prevention. we also believe parents need to be educating their kids and talking to kids about appropriate sexual behaviors to assure all of the young people in philadelphia are prepared when they think about having sex for the first time. we believe that our role is to assure that as partners for parents, we provide what young people may need if they're going to act responsibly in terms of sexual relations. >> you talk about education and i just want to throw out numbers. 25% of new hiv infections in philadelphia alone are teenagers. 15% of philadelphia students say they weren't taught about hiv or aids in school. some might argue maybe more education might be the answer, not condoms. >> we don't think it's one or the other. we think most are important. we're including education not only in schools but also include the internet and we're providing condoms as we've been doing now for more than a year in a number of locations throughout the city for young people. >> let's talk a little bit about the program. tell me a little bit about how it will work, because the part that i sort of took t
school has to have a teacher with a gun. i don't think teachers go to get their education to do that. they want -- that's why you need to have separate resource officers and armed guards to have that protection. >> let me ask you one final question, and that is, where does this end? let's say, fine, people want to put armed professionals inside schools to protect children. there was a movie theater shot up in aurora and a shopping mall that was shot up in tucson. where does it end? can you arm every place that a gunman might go? put ex-police officers, whatever? it seems it's never ending. >> you're right. i mean, it's a problem we have in our society, and, you know, movie theaters actually are making those decisions. many of them have retired police officers, off-duty police officers, malls have the same thing. so should we say we're not going to have the same type of protection when our children are going to school? certainly there's going to be some schools and some parts of the society that say we don't want do that investment, we will take the risk. but let's look simply at the
education, that person should be considered literate and should able to register to vote. those of us in the student nonviolent coordinating committee took the position that the only qualification for being able to register to vote in america should be that of age and residency, nothing more or anything less. we wanted a much stronger bill. but the whole idea of the march was not to support a particular piece of legislation. it was a march for jobs and freedom. it was a coalition of conscience to say to the congress and say to the president of the united states, "you must act." we didn't think that the proposed bill was commensurate to all of the suffering, to the beatings, to the jailing, to the killing that had occurred in the south. amy goodman: congressman john lewis. he's just written a new book called across that bridge: life lessons and a vision for change. i'll continue the interview with him in a moment.

education, all that stuff. they don't care about that. they spend the money on what they want to get elected. >> when you're saying that the previous mayor spent all the money, you're talking about mayor daly. rahm emanuel is in place now. >> right. >> he spent all the money on what? and then, two, what is the realistic proposal here to reverse the violence? >> well, over 20 years i can give you a laundry list of corruption and cronyism. but you know it well because you were here as well. and you saw it. there was a reporter once for "time" doing a cnn profile, comparing richard daly to andy of maybury and said he presides over chicago like andy of maybury. now that reporter is the press secretary for president obama. so there had been -- not you, obviously, but there had been people who were papering over and smooching up and making things look nice when they weren't nice. the city is broke. we're a thousand police officers down, at least, right? and now the city is creating this news flap, public relations issue, saying there is now we're going to take one off the 500 and make it 499. you'
the supreme court decision in the brown v. board of education decision 1954. strom thurmond is a recordholder to this day of the longest one man filibuster. and again his work pashtun and the guinness book of world records, 24 hours and 18 minutes he spoke against the 1957 civil rights bill. we remember strom thurmond today as one of the last of the jim crow demagogues. and he was. he was that. he was one of the last jim crow demagogue. what we forget about thurmond is that he was also one of the first of the sun belt conservatives. what do i mean by that? what's a sun belt conservative? the sun belt, it's one of the big stories, one of the major stories in the history of 20th century american politics. and that is the flow of jobs, of industry, of resources and population from the states of the northeast and the midwest to the south and the southwest in the post-world war ii period. the southern states were recruiting industries. they were passing right-to-work laws. they were receiving lots of funding from the federal government to build military installations at a time when the united stat

have to do this in schools. i think local education decisions are best made at the local level. you know, we're going to have a very spirited discussion in congress, in the beginning of next year. we need to look at all of the issues, because what wayne lapierre and the president of the united states agree on, is that in this country, we have a culture of violence. and, i don't think -- >> that is really -- >> a culture of violence. >> chris: and also, also the president -- not saying he's right or wrong but he believes there is a need for tighter gun control, would you support it or not. >> i'm a strong supporter of our 2nd amendment rights. i want to find real solutions. i want to find real solutions that work and washington is not necessarily the place that you will find those solutions. they will be found in our families and in our faith and communities and medicine and health care. >> senator -- >> those are the problems. >> senator conrad, what do you think of what wayne lapierre had to say, are there any gun controls you would support? >> well, i already have. i voted for an

or ourselves, then we're going to be held accountable. we have a program that's focused on education. it's on discipline. and when people don't meet the standard of the nfl, we're going to take action. there are consequences for that. >> what do you worry about the most? >> i worry about player health and safety. that's the number one challenge and focus. we want to keep our athletes safe and also athletes not just football or in the nfl, but every level. and efvery other sport. >> television coverage makes it attractive to watch at home rather than the stadium. is it a problem for the owners? >> it's a challenge for us. watching it in high-definition super slow-mo is a great experience. that's gotting to change. our challenge is how do we make sure that that same kind of experience happens in the stadium, so we're bringing technology into the stadium. we're working harder to making sure that the fans feel safe. they have to have a great experience. >> you wrote a famous letter which i have talked to you about before. written to your father. and you said two thing, i
isn't just to entertainment, it's education. call me. fiscal cliff talks. let's be optimistic. use the word stall. the president gave us a little hope tonight that an agreement to avert a middle class tax hike could still occur next week. saw the breakdown play hideously in the session today. nasdaq diving. it makes sense the market got a whacking when you consider that the speaker of the house didn't have enough votes in his own party to push through any tax increases and the president says there's got to be some. that's even for people making more than a million bucks. it was for show. the president would have vetoed the bill. tonight he's not about to let the rich get away with that. whatever that means. we have been worried that since the election the politicians won't rise above partisanship and come to an agreement. we at cnbc has taken an historic position. get a deal done for the good of the country. what faces us is worrisome. nation could see 2 million jobs loss. slashing of unemployment benefits when you are laying people out. dramatic increases in taxes for everyone. in
was listed in a book of great leaders of education. he wrote incredible thesises, if there is such a word, with just wonderful observations. he was a teacher. he also taught at elmira reformatory. he taught english to juvenile delinquents. i could never read that piece until i got much older and had this certain experience. then i was able to read it. that was me. in other words, there is so much in the cellular memory or the dna. because i never knew him. but at 16, i discovered ipsen and shakespeare. when i finally read my father's thesis it was how to teach prisoners and delinquents through ipsen and shakespeare. you know? >> have you been able to find out a lot about him and his character and his life? >> not really. although very mystical things happen, you know? i was doing a concert -- i can't remember when. several years ago. i was with my two girlfriends one night at my house. and they were talking about their fathers. i couldn't relate to them because they had the experience of having a father. i came up to my office after they left and there was a letter from my father that had
. lawmakers and top educators fired back. they say any solution also needs to include gun control and mental health care. >> i don't believe that the only way to stop violence by guns is to give the other person a gun. >> -- have acknowledged that armed police officers may be a part of the solution, but also add that's going to cost money and wouldn't necessarily prevent another shooting like last week's tragedy in newtown from happening again. either way, this debate is sure to heat up. more than 400,000 americans have already signed online petitions calling for gun control and president obama has promised to seek legislation next year. reporting live in washington, i'm danielle lee, larry, back to you. >> many thanks. we appreciate the update. >>> now, we had cnn's -- >> i honestly don't understand why you would rather have people be victims of a crime than be able to defend themselves. it's incomprehensible. >> you're unbelievably stupid man, aren't you? >> it seems to me that you're morally obtuse. you seem to prefer being a victim to being able to prevail over the criminal element. and
. so did all of the educators who died that day. they all mattered. they all had families. they all had friends. they all had -- you know, if i asked everybody in this world who has ever loved someone who has ever had a human being in their life, was essential to their well-being to raise their hand, i don't think there would be many hands down in this world. every one of those hands in a reason why those weapons should not be out in the general public. >> is there anything else you want to say? >> i don't think so, anderson. i think i said everything i want to say. i am grieving. that's all. like we all are. >> i wish you strength and peace in the days ahead. >> thank you. >> i know it is hard. >> thank you. i will need it. >> there is a lot of people who need strength here right now. the message that their lives matter, those lives matter, it is something so many parents want to get across. we'll hear from more parents tonight and i will also speak with monsignor robert weiss who has conducted so many funerals and memorial masses this week giving comfort to a community tasked with the
teachers carrying guns? >> no, i -- you think about a teacher, they go to educate these young people. they're not there to carry concealed weapons and provide that protection. they have to fulfill that role and they do it very bravely sometimes but i think it's much better to have a retired police officer or retired military person who's been trained for sensitive environments that can provide the protection, an added level of security and other security measures, not just that. let the teachers teach and let others protect. >> i think that some people would agree with the idea of having armed security guards in the school if the community wanted it, but they would also say at the same time we have to have some commonsense restrictions on guns. you shouldn't have high-capacity magazines that can shoot 30 bullets. senator manchin said background checks for those who buy them at gun shows, not just from registered dealers. what's wrong with those? >> i think it takes away -- it -- whenever you pass those kind of laws, you think, well, we've done something. we've somehow made our children mor
, david, of that movie? as a movie and then also as history. just educational to americans. >> well, it's fascinating, isn't it? it's like an epic inside baseball movie because it doesn't take the piece of lincoln's life that we're most familiar with. instead, the civil war is almost done. and here is a man who is weighing how to translate this horrible, horrible war and the emancipation pom proclamation, freeing the slaves and how to turn it into policy, government policy, to say that all things are equal under the law. so you watch this movie and it naks y makes you think lincoln wasn't just some guy who sat on a pedestal. he was a guy out there playing hardball. he had these three lobbyists in the film. i wish we could take -- >> no, they were on the fiscal cliff. >> the fiscal cliff guys and it says -- >> no, they're the best lobbiests i've seen. it showed that the democratic party of that day were pretty much k were copperheads. they were playing ball with the war ending saying that they could let the south keep slavery. >> right. and you know everything didn't really change until
of the educational testing service, which administers the test for the college board and is responsible for s.a.t. test security. >> this is not a common occurrence. >> how many impersonations did e.t.s. discover last year? >> about 150. >> but in reality, that's the 150 you know about. that doesn't mean there were only 150 impersonations. >> absolutely. >> landgraf says, according to their data, of the three million students who take the s.a.t. every year, more than 99% do so honestly. his organization spends $11 million on s.a.t. test security annually. do you know how many times sam eshaghoff took the s.a.t.? >> actually, i don't. >> 16 times. does that surprise you? >> no. >> does it concern you about the integrity of your test? if one teenage kid can do that 16 times, and that's all that we know about from him alone? >> yeah, so the integrity of the test, the validity of the test score, is the primary concern of e.t.s. and the college board. since i believe that almost all the students take the test honestly, with integrity, and the score is valid, it's very important that we not overrea

where teachers can safely educate and nurture or students. there doesn't seem to be an appetite or a lot of forces when it comes to teachers p introduces winnepeg inside of the schools. >> i think they were dealing with the proposals to have teachers in general be able to bring guns to school whenever they want to and they see that as a danger, and i also see that as a danger. i want to provide free training to deal with a situation that might arise. we would like them to be safe sanctuaries but we found out that sometimes a bad guy can penetrate and you want someone that can deal with it in that case. i'm not requiring that of anybody. if they do want it, i'm offering it as a free service we will provide to the schools. >> all right. thank you very much. we appreciate your contribution to the debate. >>> going nowhere fast, holiday travel now on hold as a wet and nasty winter storm slamming the midwest. plus, shoppers running for their lives when a shark tank shatters at a mall.

squeeze investment thes in the next generation. education, infrastructure, research. there really needs to be a balance both between taxes and spending and then on the spending side between restraining discretionary spending and restraining entitlements which are aimed at today's seniors. >> so many times we've heard talk about generational warfare between old and young. but this is a little bit different. >> right. first of all, there is no -- today there is generational warfare more in the opposite direction. the polls show that young people by and large are willing to pay for entitlements for today's seniors. what's eroded is the willingness of today's senior ares to pay for social spending that benefits today's young people. the federal government today spends $7 per capita on seniors for every dollar it invests in kids. and the electoral paradox here is that democrats are winning overwhelming majorities over these nonwhite young people. 6 60% of white steeniors voted fo romney. and there's a risk over time if they're not restrained, they can squeeze out spending investment on young
to call you before, sir. the recent article about how president obama had been educated about china and decided that he had to take a tougher stance vis-a-vis china. the article drew heavily on the national security council person responsible for china during president obama's first two or three years. was that posturing for the political campaign, or is it correct that president obama wants to have a a a more hard- nosed posture vis-a-vis china? what are doing about it? >> president obama believes that when we enter into agreements with other countries and there is negotiation and we lower barriers, and open our markets to companies from other countries, when we enter into those agreements, those countries have to reciprocate. the have to live up to their agreements, otherwise the american people, the american congress will ask, why should we enter into another trade agreement with another country if those other countries get the benefit of the bargain and we do not enforce our rights? that is why you are seeing under president obama more actions against china, taken to the wto, wh
their educational development and development as adults? >> well, we have great studies that tell us once they start smoking marijuana their iq drops significantly. their sports activities decline, their mathematical skills decline. and in fact, here is something that's amazing, it exacerbates their mental capacity, in other words, if they have some mental disabilities, it heightens it and so, we are not taking care of our teens because we want taxes, we want money. >> kelly: oh, i see. you want to do more. bishop there are 18 states out there, including the district of columbia that allow the smoking of marijuana for medicinal purposes. let me go beyond that, what can you do to stem the tide and make people aware of the harmful effects of marijuana use? >> well, we first have to talk to the parents. i want to talk directly to the parents this morning if you allow me. parents, all teens are not smoking marijuana don't believe the hype that marijuana is okay. it's a very harmful drug, you have to talk to your teen. although 18 states said it's medical and teens are buying into that, you must sit dow
